KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Construction work on residential buildings for refugees and displaced families was launched in Bagrami district of central Kabul province on Monday.

The construction works marked the launch of an Independent Capital Development Authority (ICDA)-led program aimed at providing residential facilities to war-affected families and refugees.

Ilham Omar Hotaki, ICDA chief, said 1,000 apartments would be built in Mamozai Township in Bagrami district for the affected families.

Six two-storey residential blocks and 16 residential units would be constructed in the first phase and would take three months to complete, he said. The construction workers belonged to refugees and displaced families.

Each apartment would cost $5,000 and their owners could pay the amount in installments to the government in 10 years, Hotaki said.

Toryali Rajabzada, Refugees Council head in Bagrami district, said the apartments would be constructed for 100 of 1,000 families who had returned from neighboring countries in 2003.

“The land of the apartments is allocated to refugees based on their immigration cards by the Ministry of Repatriation and Refugees (MoRR), he said.

He appreciated the government’s efforts at providing residential facilities to affected families and said: “We had been in a bad condition for 14 years and no one helped us to build houses on this land.”
